Seattle, Washington | Embark
Cruise from the Emerald City of Seattle to the wilds of Alaska for seven spectacular days. Pan for gold, feast at a salmon bake and visit a musher camp in Skagway. This town is easy to explore on foot, but the White Pass Railway will reveal Alaska’s beautiful interior.
Another great walking town is Ketchikan, the salmon capital of the world. Look for salmon in the water as you stroll and shop along the elevated walkway at Creek Street. For whales, take a sightseeing tour to Misty Fjords. Before or after your cruise, get to know Seattle and its landmark attractions like Pike Place Market. Spend a few hours shopping, dining and watching them throw fish at the seafood counters. For exhilarating views, head to the top of the Space Needle.
Enjoy this day at sea as you travel to your next port of call. This is an opportunity to swim, catch some sun on the deck or take advantage of the many activities that are onboard your ship. Eat heartily, take a nap, and get ready for the next port of call! This is what makes cruising so great.
Juneau has been called “Alaska’s peak experience,” certainly due in part to its unparalleled glacier viewing from such places as Tracy Arm Fjord, the Juneau Icefields, and Glacier Bay National Park. Kayak up one of the area’s many protected waterways, go flightseeing, tour historic downtown, or try your hand at panning for gold. The majestic Mendenhall Glacier lies nearly 12 miles outside Juneau, a track worthwhile.
In a single year from 1896 to 1897, this remote town along the Inside Passage grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Today, travelers come in search of other riches – to experience yesteryear along Skagway’s charming boardwalk lined with buildings that replicate those Gold Rush days
Glacier Bay National Park
Sail to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve a United Nations World Heritage Site. Comprised of 3.3 million acres of natural wonders, it is home to magnificent glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and abundant birds and wildlife. Experience the magnificent glaciers and wildlife at the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
Its Tlingit Indian name, Kach Khanna, means “spread wings of the eagle.” Chances are you’ll see one of these magnificent birds perched atop a Sitka tree. Thanks to its abundant rainfall, Ketchikan is surrounded by some of the world’s most lush wilderness
Viktoria, British Colombia
Roam the spacious lawns of stunning Butchart Gardens with its exotic flora, unusual topiary, and exquisite fountains. Explore historic Bastion Square, the treasures of Chinatown and the many sights and sounds to be found along the boardwalk of the Inner Harbour
Seattle | Disembark
After disembarking from Norwegian Encore, you may have a free time for leisure to explore Seattle before flying back to your country.
Seattle sitting between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, the city’s shoreline offers piers, waterside attractions, and a variety of water tours. Mount Rainier, the highest mountain in Washington, is less than 60 miles away, and on a clear day, it dominates the southeastern horizon of Seattle. About the same distance north of the city sits Mount Baker, one of the snowiest places in the world.
